Long after we step into our skiis, learn the "pizza" and move on to the "french fry", the people who taught us how how to slide down the mountain fade into the distance. But what happens when you've been cruising the blues for the millionth time, and you're just ready for a new challenge?
Despite what you may think, Ski School is not just for the kiddos. It's not just for the first-timers. Let's face it, we could all benefit from some lessons on the hill to sharpen up our skills, learn some new tricks and master challenging terrain. It's an investment that will benefit your throughout your entire ski and snowboarding career. You'll become more efficient with your turns so you don't feel so tired or sore the next day, you'll feel more confidence, and you'll be able to ride more of the mountain. Imagine carving down groomers, floating through powder, weaving through the trees, hitting up the terrain park, mastering moguls--you know you want to! But, don't take my word for it.
PSIA certified ski instructor and trainer, Erik Mogensen of Winter Park, has made a career out of teaching skiing and his expertise can change the way your ride for the better. Victoria, a decent skiier and a mom who fears the day her son will surpass her on the mountain, wants to learn how to keep up with style and ease. In just a few runs with her instructor, her skiing had noticeably improved and her confidence was soring high.
